The problem lies in mount. You'll probably get better replies from the
mount maintainer or if you report it as a bug to the linux distribution
you use (eg https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/index.cgi)

That '' would work as an escape is unlikely. You could try \ but I don't 
think that will work either.
